U.S. taxpayers this year have been given until July 15 to file as the nation deals with the effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced Friday that Tax Day will be pushed back from its usual date of April 15.

“At @realDonaldTrump’s direction, we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15,” Mnuchin tweeted. “All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties. I encourage all taxpayers who may have tax refunds to file now to get your money.”
